36-year-old Alan Shearer says he is happy to visit St James' Park as a supporter, and he doesn't miss the excitement of playing.
As Glenn Roeder's side dropped more points on Saturday against very poor opposition, Shearer has again been linked as the next Newcastle manager. But he is used to rumour, as he was tipped to replace Sir Bobby Robson and Graeme Souness when they were shown the door.
Shearer: 'At the moment, I'm not missing it at all. I haven't really had time to miss it, to be honest.
'But my body is not taking a pounding. It's fantastic waking up on a Sunday morning and not hobbling to the toilet in the middle of the night with bumps and bruises.
'I haven't missed it. I have been to a lot of the games and there hasn't been a tingle yet for me to go back out.
'I couldn't tell you what my life is going to be in two years, three years, four years, 10 years. I don't know.
'That's the honest answer, I really don't know. I'm trying to do as much as I can. I'm still doing my badges, but I'm loving what I'm doing at the moment.'
